Most reviews I take with a grain of salt. Uh_ohs I take with a big blood pressure raising grain of salt. I might see a show with a large number of reviews and perhaps check it out due to the high volume of traffic that it has received, but even then I often times am not in tune with most of the reviewers.

The only reviews I give much credence to are ones that are posted here in the forum (usually in the form of a TDIH).
These types of posts are one of the reasons I really enjoy this forum as they often times point out shows that I might otherwise overlook! Yours this morning is a perfect example. I would have not have paid any attention to that show if you had not pointed it out.
As for your recommendation....sorry my friend, but I still am not getting it. I like it, but I don't love it. I enjoyed listening to it,and will listen to it and others from the era on occasion, but it is still not enough to lure me away from my beloved '70s and '80s.

Got it; I really should say "there is no OTHER ONE" and leave the "show" aspect alone...just focus on that tune and let me know what you think.

The Other One is intense; it seems like something's trying to get out, Truckin' in parts of it.

The more staid but still intense 8-21 TOO appeals to my makeup more though:
